A Golden Heart

Teresa popularly known as mother Teresa was a unique kind of person who had a heart for everyone.She resigned at a very young age and started an orphanage with her savings.It reached a time her saving got finished and she would not be able to pay her house rent and support the orphanage. The situation forced hr to move into the orphanage,share meals with them and sleep with them.Fortunately it strengthened the bond she had with the orphans.Due to donations from well-wishers she started other orphanages. She died at an old age but left a unique mark for giving hope to the orphans.Surely she left behind a legacy of letting the less disadvantaged swim in her ocean of love.It has inspired me making me donate day in day out
